Evelyn Salt is a CIA agent and highly respected by all, including her boss, Ted Winter.
As a CIA officer, Evelyn Salt swore an oath to duty, honour and country.
Out of the blue, a Russian spy walks into their offices and offers a vital piece of information: the President of Russia will be assassinated during his forthcoming visit to New York City to attend the funeral of the recently deceased US Vice President. The name of the assassin: Evelyn Salt.
Salt goes on the run, using all her skills and years of experience as a covert operative to elude capture.
Salt’s efforts to prove her innocence only serve to cast doubt on her motives, as the hunt to uncover the truth behind her identity continues.
Ted Winter refuses to accept that she is a mole or a double agent but her actions begin to raise doubts. Just who is Evelyn Salt and what is she planning?
